Just to throw out one more idea for memorable passwords. This method was suggested by our corporate security team. Rather than use a dictionary word and then l33t sp33k it, use a memorable phrase and use the first characters then alter it. It is also good practice to mix cases and at least 1 number and punctuation character.
So the phrase “BOL Cnet’s Podcast of Indeterminate Length” becomes the password b0lCp!l (zero replaces o and ! replaces i). It is easy to remember and reproduce and not subject to a dictionary attack. Using this as a base it could be customized for different accounts.

you know what makes a perfect password??

you’re license plates

I have two cars and combine the plates.
A single plate backwards combined with your regular password would work well too.

call me anonymous!

thanks :)
